Philart Jeon Secures KATRI (Korea Automotive Testing & Research Institute) Grant

Philart Jeon, Director of the Center for Human-Centered Computing (HCC), received a research grant from KATRI for his project entitled, “Development of the safety assessment technique for take‐over in automated vehicles.” The goal of the project is to design and evaluate intelligent auditory interactions for improving safety and user experience in the automated vehicles. Research tasks include developing a driving simulator for automated driving model, modelling driver states in automated vehicles, design and evaluating discrete auditory alerts for safety purpose, and the development of real-time

Jianhui Yue Awarded NSF Grant

Jianhui Yue

Jianhui Yue (SAS) has been awarded a 3-year NSF grant with a total budget of $176,876. One PhD student will be supported for two years.  The project is titled “Improving Reliability of In-Memory Storage”. The project addresses two challenges of in-memory storage: 1) Memory cells have limited write endurance (i.e., the total number of program/erase cycles per cell), and 2) Nonvolatile memory has to remain in a consistent state in the event of a system crash or power loss. This project will take a holistic approach, spanning from low-level architecture design to high-level OS management, to optimize the reliability, performance, and manageability of in-memory storage.

Chee-Wooi Ten Awarded NSF Grant for Cybersecurity

Chee-Wooi Ten (CPS) is the lead Principal Investigator on a research grant from NSF for a project entitled, “An Actuarial Framework of Cyber Risk Management for Power Grids,” in collaboration with University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a total amount of $700,975. Michigan Tech Tech is composed of Chee-Wooi Ten and Co-Pi Yeonwoo Rho. This project aims to establish an actuarial framework for strategizing technological improvements of countermeasures against emerging cyberattacks on wide-area power networks.

HCC Center Director’s Lab Featured in the ACM Magazine, Interactions

The ACM magazine, Interactions, is featuring HCC Center Director, Philart Jeon’s, Mind Music Machine (tri-M) Lab this month. The Tri-M Lab is a transdisciplinary research group based in the departments of Cognitive Science and Computer Science at Michigan Tech. The research goal of the lab is understanding the mechanisms of the human mind and designing better interactions between people and technologies. Researchers utilize various instruments, including computer vision technologies, display wall, digital audio workstation, driving simulators, neurophysiological equipment, and robots.
